Not So Average Jane

Acra and Chris Samuels are set to celebrate their 25thwedding anniversary and 12thyear together in Big Sky – something that seemed nearly impossible during much of 2016. 

 Acra began to have pains and digestive issues in early 2016 and finally ended-up in the emergency room in Bozeman in the latter part of March.

Claws and jaws and teeth

Two separate grizzly bear attacks resulted in three injured hunters on the west side of the Gravelly Mountain range on Monday according to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. It is unclear whether one or more bears were involved. FWP is asking hunters to leave the area, and the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest is closing Cottonwood Road.

Bear in the bathroom

Yellowstone grizzly bears are stocking up on food supplies and preparing to enter the next stage of life, which means they may be more visible. Bears consume a wide variety of sustenance throughout the year including army cutworm moths, whitebark pine nuts (WBP), ungulates and cutthroat trout.

Power in partnership

Women have certainly been In Action this summer! Not only has WIA welcomed two interns to the Big Sky community, but they were able to expand into some generously donated space in order to provide more service and continuity to clients.

A look at noxious weeds nearby

Currently, the Montana Department of Agriculture lists 46 different species of noxious weeds found throughout the state. It is illegal, according to Montana State Law, for landowners to have noxious weeds on their property, and landowners are required to submit a weed management proposal for approval by local weed management districts.
